I'm curious... putting aside the top 100 name lists we have, what names from your area are popular from YOUR experiences.

---

In my area (QLD, Australia) I have noticed that a lot of unisex names or typically boy names are becoming more popular for girls... such as Kolby/Kolbi, Avery, Reese, Ryan etc. That being said my own name, Sophie, is becoming increasingly popular... I never knew any other Sophie's growing up. I was surprised to meet several little girls called Jennifer too.

For boys the most popular name I have come across is Oliver... which I love so I hate how common it has become. I've also noticed a lot of Alexander's... which I guess isn't that surprising. But some older fashioned names such as Arthur, Archie/Archer, Edward (Twilight ) are quite prevalent too.
